In Qing Dynasty homes most people sat on stools or chairs, while benches were often found in public theatres or temples. This 150-year-old bench was carved out of Elmwood in the Shanxi region of China, and has uniquely carved, cloud spandrels. In ancient China benches were low to the ground but European influence made higher designs fashionable.
